root-canalA root canal therapy is a procedure commonly used to remove infected nerve tissues within the tooth. The procedure involves removing all infected nerve tissues and fills the canals with a filling material called gutta percha. The tooth normally requires a crown afterward to protect the tooth from fracture.

What are some of the reasons why you would need a root canal therapy?

  • Your tooth has gross caries that extended into the nerve, causing severe pain.

  • Your tooth fractured after some incidents causing exposure the nerve.

  • Your tooth has short clinical crown which requires a root canal therapy to put a post inside for a buildup.

  • You have a non-vital tooth which is non-responsive to hot or cold testings.

  • You have a big filling previously done and now it is causing you pain due to close proximity to the nerve.
